Elaine Malone is an Irish psychedelic-folk songwriter. Hailing from Limerick, she currently resides in Cork, where she has carved a name for herself as an idiosyncratic songwriter. Known for her haunting voice and poetic lyricism combined with grunge roots and psychedelic leanings. Her debut single 'You' was premiered on Nialler9 in February and received international airplay. Her recent appearances include Quarter Block Party, It Takes A Village and support slots for O Emperor, David Keenan and Marlene Enright. Her second single 'No Blood' released in March was described as "musically recalling some of Tim Buckley’s airy jazz inclinations, and the gently percussive Weltschmerz of Nick Drake, Elaine Malone‘s new single cranks tension between folk music as a vehicle for aural pleasure and folk music as a vessel for crushingly human storytelling." - The Thin Air. Her debut EP Land was recorded with fellow artist Sam Clague in a small home studio over the course of a year. Described by Dan Hegarty of 2FM as “quite something - what exactly? Striking, stunning and heartfelt are three words that go some way to encapsulating it.“ Also featuring on the EP are the twin ryhthm-section of 'Talos', Josh and Sonny Sampson. Sam Clague also features heavily as a multiinstrumentalist. 'Land' deals with heartache, apathy, the tragic death of Ann Lovett and the torture of first falling in love. She will be appearing at the Earthship Stage at Electric Picnic and at the Quiet Lights Festival on September 7th.
